Business name: Moonlight Bindery
Is there a story behind your shop name?By day I am a rare book conservator for the Smithsonian Libraries and I moonlight as a bookbinder so Moonlight Bindery seems like a fitting name.
Tell us about your craft space:
I have a studio in the basement of my house. I have decorated it with vintage finds such as the 1966 classroom pull-down map that frames my desk.
A friend of mine recently opened a shop and she had these merit badges for sale so I bought a handful and mulled over different ideas for them. In the end I inset them into book covers creating one of a kind mini journals.
What is your crafty inspiration.
I am inspired by vintage wallpaper (used in my accordion photo albums) and various items I find in vintage shops such as the Verkade coffee card journals and merit badge journals I make.
